BARTLESVILLE, Oklahoma -

People in Bartlesville are cleaning up after powerful storms ripped through the area overnight. There's quite a bit of damage at Jane Phillips Medical Center and in nearby neighborhoods.

PSO continues to work on downed lines, and the clean up is still actively underway. Hospital crews are repairing a section of roof that was ripped off Monday night.

Hospital spokesperson Mike Wilt said there were shaking windows, flooded hallways and ripped up roofing at the hospital Tuesday morning.

"Some of our nursing staff said they could feel the windows shaking - which they're not used to," he said.

A spokesman with the hospital says three patients had to be moved from the cardiac floor after water started rushing in from above.

But it wasn't just the hospital that felt the brunt of the storm, neighbors of the medical center say they knew the moment the storm blew in.

"We were in the back bedroom, and it just sounded like a train coming through and it got real quiet after the rain and everything and then we came out here and this is what we found," said Lisa Turinetti, Bartlesville resident.

What they found were trees ripped from the ground, branches scattered, power lines dangling and debris everywhere. A major clean up that's leaving families and a hospital thankful that no one was hurt, and everything else can be repaired.

"The biggest battle we waged was with water, lots of water," said hospital spokesperson Mike Wilt.

Medical center operations have pretty much remained normal throughout the storm and the repairs. They tell us three patients were moved from flooded rooms, but otherwise, no other patients were affected.
